Third Great Big Art Auction raises more funds

The third Great Big Art Auction raised more than £6,000 for charity, taking the overall total for the season to beyond £18,000.

All of Louise Cobbold’s original paintings, which feature on the Wolves matchday programmes this season, are being donated with funds raised being shared equally between Cure Leukaemia, Good Shepherd Ministry Wolverhampton, Race Against Blood Cancer and YMCA Black Country.

The latest auction has run over the past ten days and saw a stunning painting of Rui Patricio raised £2,228 alone, with an impressive artwork of West Ham United’s Felipe Anderson coming in at £801.

Creations of Wilfried Zaha and Mo Salah also brought in impressive sums, as did work of Morgan Gibbs-White and Adama Traore.

Louise said: “The last 15 minutes of the auction were incredible, with Felipe Anderson really shooting up in price and Rui going from £1,500 to £2,228. That is a huge amount of money.

“To think that we have now raised in the region of £18,000 from the first three auctions of the season is just brilliant.

“Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us, from the photographers to those sharing social media posts to those bidding on the paintings.

“The four charities sharing funds raised are so grateful and cannot over emphasise how much difference this money will make.”

Limited edition prints of the paintings are now available, with 10 to 20 per cent of the profit from sales being donated to Cure Leukaemia.

The final set of artworks, including of Leander Dendoncker and Salomon Rondon, will be available at the end of the season.
